You could set up Outlook to deliver mail to different inboxes. However, to make things easier, sort the Inbox by account and then by date, for example, to view messages that belong together. This way, your mail is grouped by email accounts. Instructions in this article apply to Outlook 2019, Outlook 2016, Outlook 2013, Outlook 2010, and Outlook for Office 365. Sort Your Outlook Inbox by Email Account To sort or group the emails in your Outlook Inbox by the email account at which you received them: Go to the View tab. In the Current View group, select View Settings. In the Advanced View Settings dialog box, select Group By. In the Group By dialog box, clear the Automatically group according to arrangement check box. Select the Select available fields from dropdown arrow and choose All Mail fields. Select the Group items by dropdown arrow and choose Email Account. Select OK. In the Advanced View Settings dialog box, select Sort. In the Sort dialog box, select how messages should be sorted in the account groups. For example, to sort messages according to when the messages were received, select Received. Select OK to close the Sort dialog box. Select OK to close the Advanced View Settings dialog box. With the Outlook reading pane disabled or at the bottom, use column headers to change the sort order within account groups.

Enter folder:(inbox). Select the Search dropdown arrow and choose All Mailboxes. The current view settings are applied.
